Today (saturday sept. 26th) I started with the original, official image

[yg@localhost RPi]$ wget ''
[yg@localhost RPi]$ mv raspbian_latest
[yg@localhost RPi]$ shasum
[yg@localhost RPi]$ /usr/bin/time unzip
[yg@localhost RPi]$ ls -al
-rw-r--r--.  1 yg   yg   3276800000  7 mai   01:00 2015-05-05-raspbian-wheezy.img
-rw-rw-r--.  1 yg   yg   1038523231  7 mai   17:55
[yg@localhost RPi]$ shasum 2015-05-05-raspbian-wheezy.img
fd11a319a8e93fc5f93902c67d337ad419706e5e  2015-05-05-raspbian-wheezy.img
and ended up with an image that weights 1/5th of the original archive :

All the steps are explained there :


but I'm in a sort of rush because I want to have a complete public and working #SPI Flasher as soon as possible. Since you have all the instructions, you can spot errors, make your own version and send me patches.
